Pacific Northwest Aesthetics Academy (PNAA) offers aesthetic training courses for licensed medical professionals.
There’s no better way to add to your level of expertise and expand your marketability in this rapidly growing field of medical aesthetics than obtaining skills in the field of aesthetic medicine. PNAA offers private and group training in basic, and advanced, neuromodulator and dermal filler as well PDO threads, PRP, PLLA, sclerotherapy, and skincare treatments.
An overview of the history of neuro-toxin is followed by extensive classroom discussion of mechanism, efficacy, adverse reactions and treatment considerations of neuro-toxin injections. Instruction on patient assessment and injection techniques will be followed by hands on experience with models.
Day two includes, an introduction to the many different types of dermal filler and a demonstration of consultation techniques to determine the best course of treatment to maximize your patient’s satisfaction. Students will learn how to exam facial structures and discuss anatomical changes as people age.
Whether you’re starting an aesthetics practice full-time, beginning to inject part-time, or simply exploring your options, the training staff at PNAA can answer all your marketing, business structure, and legal questions to enable you to feel completely confident, and competent, as you embark on your new career.
Just wanted to say thanks again to you and your team for a wonderful weekend. This was one of the best training sessions I have ever attended and I feel a thousand times more confident in my injection skills, though I know I am still a rookie and need to take my time. I look forward to attending more of your programs in the future.
“I can’t even articulate how fantastic this course is. Not just the course- but the amazing women (and man!) who love to share their expertise, tricks of the trade, ongoing support, and personal life experiences. They feel like family to me now. They go above and beyond to make sure you get the information, practice, and answers you need to be successful the moment you walk out of their beautiful facility. They are the best at what they do, and instead of keeping their secrets to hoard all the business they can get, they find great joy and fulfillment in empowering others to be great in the industry. Even after the end of a long day, they will stay and chat with you after class and thouroghly take interest in you. I have had a few very bad experiences with previous “mentors” and was starting to feel like this was a flakey and superficial industry, but they completely restored my hope and enthusiasm for aesthetic nursing. I’m so glad I didn’t go to one of those mega conferences like Empire training where I would have paid way too much and received much less one on one training. There were 4 of us students in the injection course, and 3 trainers. So lots of one to one! And in the skin care for the medical course it was just me so I had all the attention and practice I could imagine. I will definitely be taking the trainings with them and continue to remain in touch. You will not regret it!”
Wonderful Instructors. Extremely knowledgeable. Helpful. They really enjoy what they are doing and the positive impact they are having in people's lives. Highly recommend them. So happy to work with them!! Go team!!!!
